You’re a world leader. Yes, you are. A creative genius, a planner extraordinaire, an agency head honcho. You’re a crucial part of the Advertising, Marketing and Comms industry in the UK. And the UK is the world’s number one. Brands come from all corners of the earth to tap into your creativity, experience and skills. And you want to keep it that way, right? Right.
Look out West to our cousins over the pond. AppNexus, Radian6, Marketo. Huge marketing and advertising tech success stories. They’re building the tech that is going to be powering the future of the brand and agency world. Our peers in the US are getting early access to the tech that is shaping our industry. We should be building it here.
Look East to the City. Where the financial industry lives. Another sector where Britain leads the world. And the people in that industry are doing something important. They’re backing their future. They’re buying into it. Pouring money and knowledge into the FinTech scene, opening themselves up to the startups that will keep the world knocking on their door. It’s time we did the same.
